Abstract (en)

The invention relates to a terminal piece (30) for making connections between a first conductor element and a second conductor element superposed with a given distance. The terminal piece (30) is formed by stamping out a substantially U-shaped piece from a conductive metal sheet and comprising a first leg portion (31) with a first contact section (31a), a shoulder portion (32) and a second leg portion (33) with a second contact section (33a), the first leg portion (31) being longer than the second leg portion (33). The first conductor element comprises a terminal path hole (20e, 70b) and a terminal-fixing hole (20c). The first leg portion (31) is passed through the terminal path hole (20e, 70b) and the first contact section (31a) is connected to the second conductor element (21b) by a first fixing means, and the second contact section (33a) is connected to the first conductor element (20b) by a second fixing means. <IMAGE>
